Squares

 Four squares of a stained glass mosaic

Today (May 1st) is City Daily Photo Theme Day and this month's challenge is squares.

So far this spring, these poppies a amongst the very few blossoms I have seen. Hooray for artists!

The mosaic overlooks a parking lot on the east side of Southlake Hospital (Newmarket) and is located on a wing I never visit.  Luckily for my husband and me,  the wife of another patient (visiting the coffee shop in the lobby one day when we were there) told me about it.

The entire 12 squares of the window

This is actually a mosaic of stained glass pieces, glued onto the glass of an old window.

Hmmm. I didn't notice until I put the photos up on my computer screen that the venetian blinds behind the mosaic create shadows on the poppies.

Excellent, EG. Not only the 12 big squares, but the pieces themselves are mostly squares, so you get credit for THOUSANDS of squares.
